Favini will be on hand with Crush, Majestic, Dolce Vita, Softy and the exclusive black range of products.
Crush is the first and only line of ecological paper made from agro-industrial waste, which replaces up to 15% of the cellulose derived from trees.
Produced using seven different materials, i.e. the byproducts from the processing of citrus fruits, kiwi fruit, corn, coffee beans, olives, hazelnuts and almonds, Crush features levels of printability and transformability that maintain the high standards of all of Favini's other papers. This means that Crush can be used in a vast variety of applications, from brochures and shopping bags to cards and packaging, and virtually all of your most creative projects.
In addition to Crush, Favini will be presenting Majestic, the line of beautiful Favini metallic, including the luxurious, elegant Satins, Dolce Vita, the next-generation paper that offers high levels of print performance with a natural look and velvety to the touch and Softy, the innovative material that feels like soft fabric, but performs like paper.
Importantly there will be the range of Black papers, a rich selection of the best black paper that the company manufactures. All collected into a handy booklet to provide a key source of inspiration for graphic designers and other creative professionals, Favini's black papers give you the full range of this highly popular, much appreciated product category, which is ideally suited to sophisticated, elegant packaging of all luxury brands.
A company with a long history of innovation in paper manufacturing, Favini is a world leader in the market of industrial release paper and has significant market share in specialty paper with market leading products for the fashion, design and other luxury industries.
Favini has two manufacturing sites in Italy, near Venice and Milan, employing a total of 500 people and generating annual revenues of around €121 million (2012 figures).
Favini has always paid attention to ecology. In the 90s, Favini patented Shiro Alga Carta, eco-friendly paper made from algae. In October 2012, Favini launched CRUSH, a break through paper made with by-products from organic products (corn, citrus and kiwi fruits, olives, almonds, hazelnuts and coffee beans) replacing as much as 15% of traditional wood pulps.
Favini's entire production process is scrupulously ecological; the cellulose used comes solely from regulated, well managed crops and is whitened using Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) methods. Both of Favini's production facilities comply with the UNI EN ISO 9001, UNI EN ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards.
Since 2008, Favini is controlled by Orlando Italy, a turnaround fund which has enabled the company to enter a new phase of growth and development.
